Searching: PALENIK, DYLEWSKI, LANGKUTSCH, BOROKOWSKI #general

Beilke1@...
 

Hello
My name is Terry and I am doing my family genealogy. I really need some
help on this. On the ship records >from Ellis Island the place where my
grandmother was born is Sradski Russia. I have looked everywhere for that place
and I can't find it. Also I am looking for any information on a John and Mary
(PALENIK) DYLEWSKI and a Carl and Minna (LANGKUTSCH) BOROKOWSKI. Where they
were from, religion, and there are any relatives still alive today. Also my
grandma Mina DELESKE had a sister that might have went to South America, I think
it was Brazil. My Grandma Mina was born in Oct 5, 1891 and had a sister
name Ottilia, Helena, and a unknown brother. Accordling to the birth cert. Carl
BOROKOWSKI was a large land owner. I guess they lived in Niedzwetzken. My
Grandpa Adolph DELESKE(DYLEWSKI/DILESKI) he had 4 brothers and one sister. He
was born in 1894. His brothers were John Paul, Yohann, August, and Adam.
Family stated that Yohann came to America and didn't like it here so went back
to Germany where he was upon arrival thrown in a concentration camp. I hope
this help some. I would be very thankful for any information that I get.

Thank you

Spiders and Headstones #general

Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

Hi Genners:

Coming across a headstone with weeds growing around it may be a hiding place for
spiders, especially the dangerous Brown Recluse spider which is mainly found in
southern states. By using a cane or a stick and running it back and forth in the
weeds will usually cause this "shy" spider to leave, and perhaps other unwanted
guests. Wearing long pants, long sleeves or gloves, is not a guarantee you will
not be bitten.

Bites can be >from mild reaction to severe. My daughter was bitten by a Brown
Recluse spider on her leg and had a severe reaction.

Joanie

1949 Transport from Shanghai to Port of San Francisco, CA - RENDELSTEIN #general

Ricki L. Zunk <nockbockle@...>
 

According to a newspaper article in The New York Tomes, dated Feb. 22, 1949,
some 628 European Jews set sail >from Shanghai, China, aboard the troop
transport ship William H. Gordon, across the Pacific Ocean. They landed at
the Port of San Francisco on Feb. 21, 1949. 447 of these Jews were then put
aboard a "liberty train" bound for New York City. >from there these people
were to get on yet another ship to take them to the "new State of Israel."
Another contingent of 137 Jews were to be resettled in the USA, and another
44 Jews were to be resettled in Europe.

I learned that our cousins, Bernhard (b: 1890) and Rosa (b: about 1888)
RENDELSTEIN, >from Tarnopol, Galicia and Vienna, Austria, were among the 628
people aboard that particular transport. >from the ship's manifest we
learned that they were headed for "Friend: Elsa Mann, 2XXX E. 26th St., NYC;"
with a "Final Destination: Vilna Deutch Grimsby Toronto, Ontario Canada."
Bernhard and Rosa were part of the very few members of this branch of the
family to survive the Holocaust.

We know, for sure, that Bernhard and Rosa settled in Canada. They had a
daughter, Stephanie Rendelstein FRUCHTER (b: 5/1921) who was married to a
Canadian military officer. We believe that Stephanie managed to get to
Canada through her husband's connections. Apparently, Bernhard and Rosa
managed survive the war on their own. We really have no idea what happened
to them between 1921 and 1949. Most of Bernhard's siblings perished in
various concentration camps.

I have tried (with little success) to reach their daughter or granddaughter
(Denise FRUCHTER), to learn more about the family. I believe that Bernhard
and Rosa are buried either in Montreal or in Toronto. I don't know which.
The last contact information I had for Denise in Toronto is no longer valid,
and I haven't been able to locate her on the online Canadian directories.
Perhaps she got married - thus changing her surname. I really don't know.

At any rate, I would appreciate it if anyone reading this post *and* has
knowledge of the program that brought Bernhard and Rose to Canada, would
contact me privately and share what they know of said program in Canada.
Perhaps records exist that might enable me to learn what happened to them
and their daughter and granddaughter.

Also, since it's been such a long time since I posted "searching for" - I've
added it to this post - but only for my RENDELSTEIN line and only with the
towns they appeared in while living in Europe. Perhaps a town or a surname
"rings a bell" with you.

Thank you, in advance, for your kind attention to this request.

Michael,

My father was born in Komarno in 1916, which was then part of

It is obviously a different town than the one that Mr. Sharon and Mr.
Halpern are referring to. It may be the one that you are looking for,
however,
as the birth certificate that you have is Austrian.
Mr. Kurtis,

I have used some historical logics in assuming that Komarno that Michael was
referring to, was located in Austrian Poland, not in Slovakia.

Komarom still exist today in Hungary, town is located on the both banks of
the Slovakian-Hungarian border Dunaj (Danube) River.

The Slovakian (smaller part of town) was renamed Komarno only after the
establishment of Czechoslovakia Republic in 1918 or perhaps even later,
following 1920 Treaty of Trianon.

It is then logical to assume that Komarno name was not in existence during
the Austro-Hungarian Empire rule, and Michael clearly refers to Komarno,
Austria. He would otherwise make a reference to Czechoslovakia.
